in the west. it is tuesday, november 13th, 2012. welcome to "cbs this morning." breaking overnight, a stunning twist. another four-star general gets caught up in the david petraeus scandal. president obama gets set to shuffle his cabinet. why some republicans aren't happy with who he wants to replace hillary clinton. and a big day here in studio 57. we'll talk with oliver stone, mike huckabee the developer of insta instagram and golfer nick faldo. >> refers to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen. >> the pentagon is rocked as a top u.s. general is linked to the petraeus scandal. >> u.s. commander in afghanistan is under investigation for alleged inappropriate communications with jill kelley. >> the sex scandal began when
7:01 am
kelley received harassing e-mails from petraeus' biographer and mistress paula broadwell. >> fbi agents were at paula broadwell's north carolina home last night for more than four hours. >> the fbi agent who launched the investigation has sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. >> you know remember when we said you couldn't have made this case up. president obama will likely nominate u.s. ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> the founder of the mcafee software company is wanted for questioning in a murder. mcafee hasn't been seen since. evacuated south of san francisco, huge water main break, cars up to their tires in water and mud. a flight in brazil almost ended in tragedy and every dramatic moment, all of it captured on camera. >> all that --
7:02 am
>> oh! >> unbelievable grab for a touchdown! >> and all that matters. >> very disappointing. struggled for about three months to get this ticket going. losing never feels good. >> on "cbs this morning." >> general petraeus has an affair with his biographer, which means from now on he will only be having sex with his autobiographer. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." while you were sleeping in the west, the scandal that brought down cia director david petraeus spreads in an unexpected new direction. the pentagon is now investigating what it calls inappropriate communications from general john allen, the command of american forces in afghanistan. >> they were exchanged with jill kelley the same woman who reportedly was threatened by
7:03 am
paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer and mistress. bob orr reports. >> good morning, norah. good morning, charlie. literally announced midflight to reporters traveling with defense secretary leon pan etetta to australia. >> on sunday the federal bureau of investigations referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force or isaf in afghanistan. >> reporter: the allegations are said to involve messages written from 2010 to 2012 between the general and jill kelley same tampa socialite who received threatening e-mails from the lover of general david petraeus. when asked if the e-mails between allen and kelley were of a sexual nature they wouldn't be specific but say, quote, they are potentially inappropriate
7:04 am
and are be looked into. married four-star marine general took over from petraeus as the top american commander in afghanistan july 2011. he told pentagon officials he has done nothing wrong. al allen was in line to become supreme allied commander for europe, a nomination now on hold. allen, though will remain in charge of 68,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan. meanwhile, late last night, fbi officials searched the north carolina home of paula broadwell, the woman linked to petraeus in an extramarital affair. agents left carrying several boxes of documents. officials have told cbs news that that began to surface in june when broadwale e-mailed kelley telling her to stay away from petraeus. this was about the same time that broadwell and petraeus broke off their affair. when petraeus learned she was sending harassing e-mails to
7:05 am
kelley, he asked her to stop. she has hired a high-powered legal team including john edwards counsel, abbe lowell. friends and former aides say petraeus did not intend to resign from his job until it became clear that the scandal would become public. they now say petraeus is extremely remorseful. >> he said in those words, i screwed up. what i did was wrong. there's no excuses for it. and he's not going to try to explain it away. >> colonel peter mansoor worked directly with petraeus from the summer of 2006 to 2008 and spoke with him several times since the scandal broke friday. mansoor says broadwell was given extended access to the general. >> i found it odd that he would allow someone to have this extensive embed. it morphed over time.
7:06 am
>> a lot of my former peers didn't know how to treat me. was i major broadwell or journalist broadwell? >> petraeus has stressed to friends that he only engaged in one affair and it was with broadwell. >> one reason that the fbi was so concerned about broadwell's original e-mails to jill kelley apparently they contain private security information about petraeus' travel schedule. at first agents thought somebody must have broken into petraeus' files. in the end, turns up broadwell was forwarding information petraeus had shared with her. norah, charlie? >> thank you. john miller joins us now. what are the implications of this now for general allen? >> so this is fallout from the broadwell investigation, which in that case they subpoena all of her accounts known accounts even the ones she thought were the unknown accounts but also kelley's accounts were subpoenaed so they can get
7:07 am
whatever cross traffic is there. that's normal investigative procedure procedure. then in the course of going through that, looking for relevant material, they find the communications between her and general allen. now they know that general allen is coming up for confirmation hearing, so this is the fbi kind of turning overall of the kelley communications with general allen to dod saying before this comes up or doesn't come up or comes up later in the confirmation hearings you need to look at this stuff from your optic and say is there anything inappropriate or improper here. >> general allen says he did nothing wrong. however, the pentagon panetta spokesperson last night said this involves 20,000 to 30,000 documents. that's a lot of documents sent between two -- two years between jill kelley a civilian woman, and top general in afghanistan. doesn't that raise red flags? >> well this is from 2010 to 2012. so it covers a couple of years. they're not documents the way we consider documents. these are e-mails going back and
7:08 am
forth. if you see the way people blackberry with their iphones and text back and forth, it's still a lot, but i think what they did is -- >> is it normal for jill kelley - in florida to have -- >> she isn't your average housewife in florida. erin moriarty will get into that later. she is a major figure around the central air force base mcdill air force base. >> and in washington as well. >> that, too. she's going fo visit petraeus in washington at the cia and petraeus is telling this to broadwell. and broadwell and he have just broken off. you can watch the wheels turning there. she's thinking did he throw me over for her and then the broadwell e-mails start. ankle kelly knows broadwell broadwell knows petraeus and then this circle starts. >> and fbi agent in tampa knows
7:09 am
kelley. >> how does he know kelley? where did she get an fbi agent that says i can get a criminal investigation started into these harassing e-mails by the federal bureau of investigation. she meets him when she attends the tampa fbi citizens academy, eight-week program community leaders are allowed to sit through briefings to learn how the fbi works. she meets him there, chats him up afterwards. when this happens much later, she contacts him and says i have this problem. can you get me to the right person? he brings her to the cyber squad. >> quick question again on paula broadwell. she had no classified documents but last night the fbi spent four hours at her house in north carolina, pulling boxes out of her house, searching for additional information. does that suggest that they think this is not over? >> as we reported yesterday, she does have classified documents but she is a major in the army reserve, has security clearance.
7:10 am
the question is how were those documents obtained and were they properly stored ? she gave consent, signed the form. they went in and said let's get all the paper documents and get your computers. we'll go through them and give them back. they're looking for any other loose ends there. >> john miller thank you. political pressure from congress is going as well as this scandal is growing. sharyl attkisson is live on capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: more questions are raised increasing the scope of their investigation here on capitol hill. as congress' investigations broad nooenen into petraeus' affair on the intelligence committee, owe olympia snowe says the fbi probe which intercepted personal e-mail s e-mails adds another dough mention. >> should the president have known sooner? what was the basis that forge this had investigation, what steps were taken by the fbi to
7:11 am
initiate this investigation in the first place? >> reporter: chairman of the house homeland security peter king has his own questions for the fbi. >> not telling the intelligence committee about that is -- was wrong. absolutely wrong. and the fbi is going to have to explain itself to the committee. if not there will be consequences. >> reporter: for the first time defense secretary leon panetta commented to reporters about petraeus aboard a flight calling it a very sad situation for the general's career to end in scandal. reporters asked whether the former general could be prosecuted if the affair began while he was on active duty. >> you know i don't know. i don't know the answer to that. i guess i'm not reading the papers like you are to determine just, you know what the committee finds out and what the ultimate investigation determines on that issue. >> reporter: in a related development here on capitol hill in just a few hours, the senate foreign relations committee will get a briefing from the state department on the september 11th attack on benghazi. that will happen behind closed
7:12 am
doors. charlie, norah? >> wow, joint committee. sharyl attkisson, thank you. president obama is putting together a new cabinet for his second term, including a new cia director. so far only hillary clinton has confirmed she is going to leave. already republicans are objecting to her potential replacement. bill plante, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning in the west. cbs news has learned that the president will likely insist on nominating susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protest, not terrorism, and she has come under fire from republicans. when asked about the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator linds graham had this to
7:13 am
say on "face the nation." >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi d debacle. we need to get to the bottom of t the president has a lot of leeway with me and others when it comes to making appointments but i'm not going to promote somebody who i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. >> reporter: white house says that these objections are unfounded that she was simply repeating what intelligence agencies had told her and graham should be aware of her minimal role. massachusetts senator john kerry was also talked about for secretary of state but now his name is being mentioned as possibility for secretary of defense to replace leon panetta. john brennan, president of homeland security adviser could have the cia job if he wanted it we're told. but if he wants to retire the job is likely to go to general petraeus' number two, michael morell. charlie, norah? >> bill thanks. congress gets back to work with a long list of things to
7:14 am
do. there is still talk of a compromise to prevent a budget crisis. jan crawford has been -- steve crawford has been following this. pleased to have you with us this morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> where do you think the compromise with the president stands today? >> i think it's going to happen. substantial compromise maybe not work out all the problems but i think they have to make some real progress between now and the first of the year. >> on the house side that's clear that boehner is send inging a message to fellow republicans on the house, we've got to make extra steps that we didn't before? >> i think that's true and i think the president has responded by saying i'm not wedded to the idea of tax rate increases. i'll settle for more revenue, if that's the -- if that's what i can get. >> yuf got senyou've got senators
7:15 am
reid and mcconnell. >> it was like arranging the peace talk ss. it wasn't easy. >> were they as uncomfortable as they look sitting next to each other? >> yes. >> yeah? >> yes. >> what did you learn from that? >> what can you say? they don't strike me as two guys that are going to sit down in a room over a whiskey and kind of work things out. they're very locked in their way s and they are both political tacticians. that's what they do. >> they are brilliant political tacticians. they are both good at what they do in outmaneuvering one another. they're so politically far apart. why should we expect a compromise bill to happen? >> i think the future of the party of republican party very much depends on getting away from this view held by some in the public that they're just obstructionists. the other thing is that there's just too many things that are
7:16 am
really important like the bond rating, for example. there's a lot of talk now that if they don't work something out we're likely to lose another aaa bond rating which costs the american taxpayer even more money. there are too many things that have to be worked out. the main message from the election is we want you people to get together and do it. >> and business leaders saying fix it. >> nothing like the concentration of the hangman's noose. >> exactly. >> where america is unless they do something about it. >> in a time where we've got really 30 days to focus, we get the first sex scandal in. lord knows how long this will divert everybody's attention. >> get more coverage than the negotiations in congress of the fiscal cliff? >> by a factor of ten. >> and certainly on this program. steve kroft, good to see you. >> good to see you. on the scene of a major

four-star general caught in a web of sexual intrigue. an age old story. boy meets girl boy marries girl, boy meets promoted boy bangs other women. nothing more or nothing less. or is there? >> this is one of those what the heck is going on kind of moments. this feels a little "homeland" almost. >> really, like the show "homeland"? because it's not "homeland," it's "melrose place." a man had an affair with an admirer. all of a sudden she saw some other girl with him and she was all like, you better step off, because i saw him first. the other girl is like i'm going to call my friend who works at the fbi because you're scaring the [ bleep ] out of me. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." we are taking a closer look at jill kelley. she's the one who received the anonymous e-mail threats that led to the petraeus resignation as cia director. >> we told you earlier how the fbi's been investigating e-mails between kelley and the top u.s.
7:31 am
general in afghanistan. erin moriarty has been following jill kelley's story. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. this latest twist is completely unexpected in this case. but it appears jill kelley may have known general allen, who was also stationed in tampa, florida, the same way she knew general petraeus. as a fixture on tampa social circuit, jill kelley is used to being in the spotlight, but not like this. she may now be at the center of a new scandal involving general john allen, top u.s. commander in afghanistan. her picture has been splashed across front pages ever since she was identified as the target of harassing e-mails from paula broadwell, david petraeus's alleged mistress. broadwell apparently saw the 37-year-old as a threat but according to kelley's brother, his sister and petraeus were nothing more than friends. >> i know who my sister is and i know she's a good mother and a good wife. this is completely
7:32 am
uncharacteristic of her to actually have a relationship outside of her marriage. >> reporter: kelley has three young children with her husband, a prominent cancer surgeon. the two met petraeus about five years ago through their charitable work for military families. in fact, the couple often attended events at the military central command in tampa. kelley was also known for hosting glitzy bashes of her own at her million-dollar mansion. petraeus and his wife were often guests. as the petraeus scandal continued to unravel sunday kelley was hosting a birthday party for one of her kids. for now, kelley is staying silent. she left her home monday for the first time but didn't say a word. along with high-profile attorney abbe lowell. she also hired judy smith, the same crisis manager who represented monica lewinsky. >> the primary thing is that she wants her privacy protected. and i think that she's going to probably come out at some point and make a statement.
7:33 am
>> so that's what we read into the hiring of this criminal lawyer abbe lowell is the fact that she wants to protect her privacy. >> well, i think she does. when i first heard that and i'm sure you reacted the same way because he has almost this kind of reputation of taking on these political sex scandals. i mean he represented former president clinton and gary condit. but in this case, i should point out that abbe lowell has known the kelleys for almost ten years. he was not recently hired. he's been involved really since june. and so for two reasons, one is when she knew that this was an fbi investigation and she was asked to speak with the fbi, then she did get his counsel. and you must remember this with the john edwards case he is so fast on saying if you report that story, you report that story at your risk and i think she wants that kind of pit bull. >> why would jill kelley have
7:34 am
reported these initial threats to the fbi? there's still some questions about how that occurred and why the fbi followed up on them. >> i should point out that she never met paula broadwell. she did not know her. she did not know that petraeus was involved in any kind of affair. all she knows is that she's getting these e-mails that start about the same time that general petraeus was told the fbi that the relationship with paula broadwell ended. the e-mails are written and the writer seems to know petraeus's schedule and knows jill kelley's schedule, and so her concern is -- and she has this friend who works with the fbi that maybe his e-mail has been hacked. she's nervous. she thinks somebody is watching her. >> when she gave that information to her friend that was the fbi agent, did she assume he would do something with it and did she want him to do something with it, like find out who was sending these e-mails? >> right. i think it was starting off as more of a cyber stalking investigation done as a favor. and then it became something much more.
7:35 am
i think that's when she asked abbe lowell, because it's an fbi investigation. >> erin moriarty thank you so much. a computer software billionaire is on the run. people want to question john mcafee in the murder of his neighbor. we're going to meet a reporter who visited mcafee's home and was afraid that he would never get out. you're watching "cbs this morning." i'm so happy to be marrying your mom. you know that, right? uh-huh. i know this hasn't always been easy for you. and i'm really happy that you're in my life, too. ♪ ♪ it's just like yours, mom!

computer users know the name mcafee because of the anti-virus software used on tens of millions of pcs. the found ser iner is in hiding. officials in central south america want to talk to him about the murder of his neighbor. >> reporter: police in central belize say this is the murder scene and this is the man they want to question about it. 67-year-old john mcafee. in the '80s, he founded the
7:40 am
anti-virus software company that bears his name. mcafee lives next door to the american american ex-patriot gregory faull who was found with a single gunshot wound in the back of the head. reports say the two men had been at odds for some time arguing over things like noise made by mcafee's dogs. belizean authorities are calling mcafee a person of interest in the murder. >> he has not brought any tangible conclusions yet. the motive has not yet been established. >> reporter: mcafee is telling he's innocent and he believes this is part of a belizean government conspiracy to get him to leave the country, saying "i'm adept at hiding. i'll do whatever it takes to stay alive." this is not mcafee's first run-in with police in belize. last april they raided his home looking for drugs and guns. his fear of authorities evident in an interview with a belizean reporter days later. >> i am a 66-year-old man who would never expect 42 armed soldiers and police to storm

7:42 am
known him, he's followed a downward trajectory. >> because? >> well because -- i think because he has some dark aspects to his character, and in a sense, being able to do whatever you want can be a curse at times. >> you say when you recently visited him that you were concerned about your own safety. why? >> well, i was. because i talked to people who had been intimate, who had been very close to him. and many of them had left his property -- had left his entourage and told me that they were frightened for their lives even back in the united states. so thousands of miles away from him, they were still worried that somehow he could reach out and harm them. >> what do you think he's capable of doing? >> i don't really know what he's capable of doing. he's a very strange man. he's one of these people who the more i've gotten to know him, the harder it is for me to pin down exactly -- >> and the last time you talked to him? >> a month or two ago. i e-mailed him yesterday and he didn't reply. >> any idea where he is? >> the place where he's living
7:43 am
in belize is about 30 miles from the mexican border and he has boats. he could be anywhere. >> everybody knows mcafee security. all the time it pops up the anti-virus stuff on my computer. is he still wealthy? >> it's impossible to really pin down any fact about john mcafee. he told weather looking good outside. we have a lot of sunshine, just a few passing high clouds,
7:44 am
looking the at a great day ahead. this high pressure will bring very nice dry weather outside. it is chilly in some of the valleys to begin with. 39 degrees in concord. 34 in fairfield. 40s and 50s elsewhere. temperatures by the afternoon up in the 60s. some places nudging 70 degrees and. probably over that on thursday. we could see some rain as early as friday. the puppeteer who brings elmo to life is denying claims of an affair with an underaged boy. we'll see thousand controversy could affect "sesame street's" biggest starch that's next on "cbs this morning." with over 200 varieties, keurig makes brewing a delicious cup of coffee simple. how does it brew such great coffee? well... inside the brewer are these green fields of coffee

we'll ask the co-founder of instagram why america turns to his apps to share his pictures. first here is a look at what's happening in the world and what we've been covering on "cbs this morning." >> word came very early this morning. >> the pentagon is investigating what it calls inappropriate communications from general john allen, the current commander of american forces in afghanistan. >> they were exchanged with jill kelley, the same woman who reportedly was threatened by paula broadwell, petraeus's biographer and mistress.
8:01 am
>> do civilian housewives in florida have communications with top generals in afghanistan? >> i think she's not the average housewife in florida. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to name susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> there is still talk of a compromise. >> you got senators reid and mcconnell to actually sit together. >> it was like arranging the paris peace talks or the camp david talks. it wasn't easy. a computer security software billionaire is on the run. police want to question john mcafee in the murder of his neighbor. >> what do you think he's capable of doing? >> i don't know what he's capable of doing. >> "sky fall" came in number one this weekend with $88 million, about a spy who fights terrorists and sleeps with a lot of women. critics are calling it well made while david petraeus is calling it relatable. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell.

it was an overnight bombshell, a new twist in the sex scandal that forced cia director david petraeus to john the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, general john allen fbi is unvaer investigation. the fbi connected him to the woman who first blew the whistle senior cor on this case. john miller former assistant mer fbi as fbi director joins us here. good morning again. >> >> good morning. >> so why was this fbi agent that knew joe kelley thrown off >> the case or was he? well, >> okay.teresting. that's interesting. he was never on the case. agent but he is the agent who brings into the the case into the office.l he knows jill kelley. citizens she's attended the fbi citizen's so w academy. he gave a presentation, gave her a card. they stay in touch. when she gets the e-mail she says i want to see who is uad. bringing these to these things. the he brings to it the cyber squad. they said, gee, there's no threat here but if it's a friend i of yours, we can open a case.s saying here is what's happening after t
8:03 am
that, he's saying what's the they update, what's the update. they say it may involve not petraeus. y at some point they say we're not inform giving you anymore. this information seems to be funneling back to jill kelley. kell so he's cut out of the case not thrown off the case. >> that's the irony of this she whole thing. she starts it by telling the fbiircled friend and it circles all the way back and now has ensnared general john allen.0,000 20 to 30,000 documents. that so me is a lot of inapprop documents. >> described as inappropriate xactly documents. what exactly does that mean? >> i thi >> i think what that means is that's over a two-year period. still, that means sending a number of those a day. that that's too much communication be between two people for that to e than a be something more than an of extraordinary relationship with unicatio that level of communication. so what happens there is the fbi the gets that in the course of this member, th investigation. remember the target of this caserget
8:04 am
isn't david petraeus. the target of this case is paula broadwell and whether there's a stalking charge to be brought. y these other people become collateral damage. now you add general allen to that. he's coming up for confirmation. k the fbi turns over the kelley e-mail saying this isn't part of our criminal probe, but if this you're going through a criminal you process yourks might as well see this now. tion >> do you think this is a cri criminal investigation now?n is >> i think the criminal investigation is just about over, and i doubt -- i could be wrong. i doubt anyone will ever be nd publici charged. i think we'll see more scandal i thi and i think we'll see more more collateral damage as other nd people get ensnared in this. >> and more people?20,000 >> i think when you're going through everybody's e-mails in 20,000, they start to say what else should we turn over this is going to be one of those things where somebody started to pull a string and didn't know the whole thing was going to
8:05 am
>> unravel. >> her name is jill kelley. e >> that's the buzz on capitol hill that more people will be ard it h involved. >> more scandal. you heard it here first. 7% of people have heartburn every single day. have the new research suggests that somet many of them are suffering from something other than acid reflux reflux. the "wall street journal" su reports half the patients who suffer from reflux disease don'ting get relief from acid-reducing fering medication. doctors suspect that some of them may be suffering from a reflux of bile a liquid produced in the liver instead ofn stomach acid. knoc britain's bbc has been knocked off its feet by another serious error. this morning two top news executives have stepped aside. charlie d'agata is in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charli. two top xkives maybe more to mo come, after an apparent coverup of one child sex abuse story and-up shoddy inaccurate reporting of another has landed the bbc in

not taking strong stands on important issues that's not a good thing. i don't think republicans have to be women pish. they have to explain how their policies empower people rather than how it pushes people down. >> let me get to this one point. you supported todd akin or not? >> i did. >> you also supported richard mourdock, right? >> i really wasn't involved in his campaign. he's the nominee. he's a team player. i'll support the people in our party. >> karen hughes who was close to president bush xliii. if another man says anything about rape other than it's a horrific crime, i want to personally cut out his crime. >> nobody defended what todd akin said. he even repudiated it. the republicans did more damage to aiken than the democrats had to. they didn't go after karl rove when he said he would have murdered todd akin. i think murder is pretty serious
8:17 am
as well. that shows the inconsistency. the party has to decide, either it stands with its people or it doesn't. >> what do you think todd akinche meant when he said legitimate rape? >> i think he's talking about the concept of statutory or forcible. the point is it doesn't matter. he repudiated it and he knew he made a mistake. >> you differ from other members of the republican party on that. there is a split there. mitt romney it was a 20-point gender gap. that is the biggest gender gap in half a century. don't you think the comments of aiken and mourdock led to that or do you think it was more than that? >> i think it was more than that. we lost senate candidates all over the country that had nothing to do with that. campaigns and candidates that should have won and they got beat as bad as todd akin did. i think that's not a fair assessment of what happened in
8:18 am
the elections. >> a quick thing about benghazi. do you think david petraeus should testify in congress notwithstanding his resignation as cia director? >> sure. i think he has to. i think he will. he's an honorable man. he did a very unfortunate and terrible thing with his family. but it does not take away from who he is and the extraordinary career he's had as a person who has dodged bullets for the rest of us as americans. we were standing in line at starbucks trying to decide latte or regular coffee. he was out there taking bombs an bullets for america. i don't want to ever forget that. he's a true hero. american soldier, a soldier's soldier. >> i have in my mind mike huckabee, "dear chandler dear scarlet: a grandfather's thoughts on faith, family and things that matter most." other than faith and family what matters most? >> i think that your kids and grandkids have a connection with who their ancestors are so they

x welcome back to "cbs this morning." oscar winner oliver stone has focused on recent history in movies like "platoon", "jfk" and "born on the fourth of july." his new documentary series is called "oliver stone's untold history of the united states." >> generations of americans have been taught that the united states reluctantly dropped atomic bombs at the end of world war ii to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of young men poised to die in an invasion . offing of young men poised to
8:31 am
die. the story is more disturbing and more complicating. >> the book called "the untold history of the united states." it is published by oliver and schuster, a division of cbs. it is a ten-part indictment of the united states. is that fair? >> no i don't think so. coming from the establishment, i'm not surprised. we have done an untold history of the united states. there is a reason high school students do not study history and do not know history because they cut out all of the good parts. >> you said it took you, oliver four years to make this. what is it you want us to know? >> you're asking a question. let's start with the origin of this with world war ii. >> that's how you begin the
8:32 am
series? >> we do. we begin with the idea that we acknowledge the soviet contribution. they won world war ii on land. they beat the military machine, which is not something you ordinarily learn in school. we go there from dropping the atomic bomb which is unnecessary. we go from there to the cold war. in the first three chapters we cover the beginning of the national security and global security state we have. >> why were you so fascinated with it? >> i was born in '46. my father was a republican. i was raised a conservative believer of american mythology. like millions of others i went to war in vietnam for it. that's not the only reason for it. i had the reason to travel and experience the way around the world. i saw through chinese eyes and asian eyes.
8:33 am
as a result, i think what's lacking in our foreign policy and in our policy is we have an american exceptionalism. we consider ourselves like obama said the indispensable nation. we don't have the compassion to see the world as a globe which we are a partner. we are operating on the edge of a very dangerous precipice where we continue to contain and find and fight enemies and find a reason to blow our military budgets. >> other nations feel that way about their countries. >> that's not true. no country felt they were the inndispensable nation. >> china? >> one foreign base. we have 800 plus bases. china has not a history of aggression. the united states does.
8:34 am
we deal with this in the book. ok. >> i want to talk to you about david petraeus. your you're a former military man. do you believe he should have resigned? i'm curious about your thoughts about him. >> he's part of the military machine that's come into existence since 2001. and i don't understand all the furor. i mean in american media, they praise him as a hero. i don't see the hero. i see a misguided policy in iraq, a misguided -- even more misguided policy in afghanistan. i don't think the surge worked. i think that was a lot of media hype. and i don't trust his credentials. i mean he was in vietnam, but he made his reputation writing about counterinsurgent si in vietnam, which i was told you know what, get the press on your side. that was his counterinsurgency proposal. he's very good at that. when he appears on congress
8:35 am
with, he seemed to woo the congressmen. they were falling at his feet. the military worship in this country has reached unhealthy proportions. the second time he appeared it was about this much. the third time it was about falling off his jacket. general marshall, by example, in world war ii one of our great leaders, rarely we're his medals in public. >> why should we not honor those who fought and died for this country? at the end of the day, it's civilian leadership that sends them to war. >> i am all for honoring people who serve. i did serve. i'm a veteran myself. but i don't believe in false worship and hero worship and the kind of hysteria. petraeus has not a record of success in iraq. more people died as a result of the surge, americans and more iraqis and in afghanistan, he's begun a policy that's essentially backfired because of drone attacks creating more enemies for america.
8:36 am
>> do you believe there was a false narrative about general petraeus? >> i do. >> in what way? >> i don't know how it started, but he appeared out of the blue as a magic man that was going to solve the problem in iraq. >> is this your own opinion? >> no it was announced that he reversed a tide with the surge. you know the surge is an interesting story. michael hastings knows a lot more about it. but there's a lot of bribery going on. whether it's vietnam, whether it's iraq or afghanistan, there's a lot of payment of money that goes on. we buy people off. petraeus played both sides. >> the surge also was about convincing the sunnis that they should turn on al qaeda. >> that's correct. but originally we paid the shiites to kill the sunnis. then we went the other way, we gave money to the sunni tribal news to turn on al qaeda. but they were the -- a lot of
8:37 am
them were al qaeda. you give money to somebody in a war situation, you think they're willing to stay loyal to you? they take the money because you're american and you're rich you have all the weaponry but they know you're gone so when you're gone, they have to survive. same thing in vietnam. had the whole south vietnamese government which took our money, but didn't love us. money doesn't last. >> define your own political philosophy, as we talk about here. >> my political philosophy is live and let live as much as you. we cannot be global policemen. we have to be regional partners with every country in the world, whether it's venezuela, brazil south america. whether it's china, russia turkey. respect regional powers. >> so the arguments on the part of anybody, no international organization should listen to any arguments about going into syria or supporting the rebels in syria, in your judgment. >> in the syrian interest

story -- first of all, we've got to get our intelligence correct. we don't know exactly what's happened in syria and i don't think we should fight a war on that. as to international organizations, it would be a good idea for us to join one. we are the only nation that has resisted the united nations in. >> i only do this because we have a time clock here. great to see you. >> four parts. oliver stone always has an interesting take. >> unboring. >> yes, unboring. it's true. instagram is kangchanging the way that we see the world. we'll ask kevin systrom how his photo sharing site ended up good morning, you headed out the door today, lots of sunshine coming our way and mild temperatures by the afternoon. a little chilly to begin with outside, especially in some of the valleys.
8:39 am
just a few high clouds cruising in overhead, otherwise the temperatures in the 30s in places inland and 40s elsewhere and 50s out toward the immediate coastline. by the afternoon, 60s across the board. almost 70 in some of the hottest spots in the interior. chance of showers moves in on friday.
8:40 am
there's another guy that invented instagram. do you know what it is? >> you take a picture thing and
8:41 am
send it to your buddies. >> basically you take a picture with your iphone. you hit a button it makes it look old. he sold that for a billion dollars. i'm looking at my kid going hey, can you come up with an app here? >> makes it look old. >> he's talking about you. >> when superstorm sandy hit the northeast, more than 800,000 pictures were shared online using instagram. "time" magazine even used a photo for the cover story. facebook bought it in april for one billion dollars. instagram co-founder and ceo kevin systrom is here. welcome. >> thank you so much for having me. >> just in case there's somebody on the planet who doesn't know what it is that instagram does, tell them. >> instagram is a fast and beautiful way of sharing photos on a mobile phone. you share photos with your
8:42 am
friends instantly and make them look beautiful. >> how did you have the idea? how did it come about? >> the instagram history really spans from my childhood until now, which is that i used to love taking photos with instant cameras. by taking instant photography and taking it to the digital age, we put the power of instant photography in your hand. >> and you now have more than a hundred million users, right? >> it's a lot. a hundred million users all using instagram to share the world as it happens. and that's what i think is most powerful about what we're doing. you take a photo, share it, and have it anywhere in the world within seconds. >> when you make this much money, in terms of what happened when you sold it to facebook, how does it change your life? >> i mean fundamentally, the most changing way that everything happened was that we started affecting everyone's lives. so you see an instagram photo on the cover of "time" magazine. you see people using it in ways you never thought you would. i think that's the most
8:43 am
impactful part. >> in terms of you, the way you live your life what you do every day. did you go out and buy a plane? >> new towels? >> i live in the same apartment i've lived in for five years. what it's about for me is working on an amazing project with amazing people. >> what do you think when you see clips like david letterman and denis leary talking about your product? what do you think when you see something like that? >> honestly i think it comes back to the impact we're having and the fact that you look around anywhere in the world and people are using it. i was out last night and saw people using it in a restaurant. you go to tokyo, you see people using it in a bar. anywhere you go, instagram is there. >> and then you're on to the cover of "time" magazine. so major news events like hurricane sandy and "time" magazine. is that your expectation, kevin? >> the expectation, at least early on was that we would try to have that amount of impact. but to see hurricane sandy photos come in and realize that people are documenting a world event that everyone's going to look back on in 20 years and
8:44 am
realize that instagram was at the center of this world event. >> you had ten instagram photos per second with hurricane sandy. the election, too, record number of photographs taken. there's a kind of journalism in some ways that goes along i think with social media. we've seen facebook effect world change. i mean arab spring. have you seen that yet with instagram? do you think about that when you think about your company, about how it can actually change the world? >> instagram is very much focused on smart phones. as smart phones begin to penetrate the populations, you'll see instagram take even more of a role in these types of things. with hurricane sandy, with ten photos a second simply of hurricane sandy photos and that's it you realize you're having an impact in a way you never expected before. >> is twitter becoming more powerful than facebook? >> i think it's powerful in different ways. i think they all have their roles. i think twitter does an amazing
8:45 am
job at disseminating information very quickly. we disseminate visual information very quickly. i think facebook is the center of social information. i think all three of them form a very nice triangle. >> what's the future of facebook say? >> i think it's about connecting people. i think in the future they're going to connect via mobile via desk top, via different devices that we have. it's all about the social connections. >> and they can monetize on smart phones and on mobile technology? >> and i think they are. i think what's interesting is the more engagement you see in the palm of your hand you realize that's an opportunity we're all going after. >> i know mark zuckerberg tried to hire you in 2006. are you sorry you turned him down? >> it was one of the mistakes i made. i feel very lucky to have been part of many companies and i got to see interesting companies grow, everything from twitter to facebook to google and for me it's really about knowing the smartest people in the world,
8:46 am
because i feel like i get to learn more from them. >> and now you get the chance to meet charlie and gayle. >> exactly. >> nick faldo won the masters and the british open three times each. he'll talk this morning of building a perfect golf swing and why tiger woods hasn't won a major title in four years. that's next right here on "cbs this morning."
8:47 am
8:48 am
who loves golf? we do. cbs sports golf analyst nick faldo won six grand slam titles in his career. his how-to book for golfers, "a swing for life" has just been updated and rereleased. >> it marks the 25th anniversary
8:49 am
of his first major championship the 1987 british open. nick faldo joins us now. welcome. >> i've still got that sweater. i was in that sweater. and it fits. how about that? even more impressive. >> when you set out to write this book what did you -- how did you want to do it? what did you want to accomplish? >> well i would almost call it an absolute must. i played pro-ams for 30-plus years and i can really categorize the club golfer. been to several different areas. this is what happens in your swing. your weight is on your heels. this is what happens when your alignment is this way. that's what i try to bring everybody back to give them some idea of trying to hit the golf ball in the right direction. because the one -- notthe number one thing is golf alignment. the guy would fire it straight into the trees and i would say good shot. i would say no that's right
8:50 am
where you aimed. so that's half the problem. >> so how would you describe the perfect golf swing? >> how old wow you describe it? >> yeah. >> actually the great thing about our game is we have our fundamentals, which i read theones ben hogan's book. and then my open championship. now i walk down the range with my cbs hat on asking the best golfers, i just tweaked my grip. posture is getting a little sloppy. doesn't matter whether you're a beginner or the best in the world, the fundamentals stack up. the more you can do that it's the building blocks to a good swing. >> so you're trying to build a swing that can repeat. >> exactly. and the number one thing, you play great one day, come back the next day, what happened? and even worse, i always say get to the third tee and go i don't
8:51 am
get it, it was great on the range. >> nick, you were talking to the golf virgin at the table. so please help me understand why this game means so much to you. charlie during the break said this is a book that's perfect for smart golfers. tell me your love of the game and why this is such a great book for a smart golfer. >> i was a sportsman looking for a sport when i was a kid. i loved my swimming. but training at 5:00 in the morning doing three miles with a mouthful of water really gets old. i tried cycling. fall off your bike throw up and the guy goes good ride. then i found golf. and the fascination for me is that every shot is different. if you hit a good one, you try and do it again. you hit a bad one you try and avoid it. on the golf course, every shot is different. every hole is different. that means every round is different. every day is different. every week is different. so you can engross yourself. that's why it gets you. it's a love. it's a passion. i started at 14.
8:52 am
by time i was 15 i made my decisions. i said look, i want to be a pro golfer. and i was off on a mission. >> who do you watch now and say fabulous player? >> well, an awful lot of them. the top end is good. it's colorful, exciting stuff. we've got young rory mcilroy kind of leading the way when he does some special stuff like he did at the pga. that was quite something. >> we've got 30 second. you do not believe that tiger will win 18. >> i think it's tough. he's had four years now without a major. and he's starting to question a few things in his own swing. that's it. >> not even surpassing jack. you don't even think he'll win another major, you've said. >> well, you can't put the absolute. you have to
